By night, Mandi is a waitress in her best friend's adult entertainment club, complete with long raven hair and bright blue eyes. By day, she's a boutique jewelry maker with a flair for the occasional naughty design. She's shy, quiet, a definitive Plain Jane-and completely in lust with the one man who wouldn't ever be interested in her. He's big, menacing, and inspires every one of her dirty girl desires. If birthday wishes came true, he would be hers. Tattoo artist. Business owner. Lover of vintage cars. Drummer. Jaz is far from the average guy. Built like a brick wall and inked from head to toe, he can scare the faint of heart with just a look, but faint of heart isn't what interests him, isn't what fuels his fantasies and keeps him hard from dawn to dusk. It's her-the waitress, his sister's friend, the birthday girl. Mandi is given the best present ever-Jaz. And she's got one night to make every wicked thought and erotic dream she's had about him come true.


I swear Lissa Matthews has a direct line to my desires and fantasies because this raw and sensual read is definitely one of them! Mandi's birthday wish is her bestie’s tattooed hottie of a brother. She's been lusting for him since taking the job as a waitress at her friend's club. Jaz can't believe his luck, the deceptively innocent voluptuous woman who has been keeping him up -- literally --wants him. He has twenty-four hours to make their fantasies reality and perhaps convince her one day just isn't enough. Jaz is not your typical hero but he not only got under my skin he burrowed into my heart. I've never really been a fan of big, bulky men but this substantial man and his strength have definitely given me some wicked ideas. I love curvy heroines and Mandi is a wonderfully complex woman. She's so authentic, wanton and sexy one moment and then so shy and innocent the next. She sees herself as plain but that's not how Jaz sees her. Their attraction is combustible and the fact that they each have a crush on one another added the perfect amount of sweetness to this story. I love when I feel a connection with the lead couple and I sure did here. This author is on the top of my must-read list and this is one of her stories that I will be reading over and over again.
